The new concrete apron in front of the shed was the perfect size and shape to hold all the important things for our 2017 end of year celebrations. It was wide enough for table, chairs, an esky and still had enough room for people to mill around.
This year’s Christmas party was a low key affair: a great selection of lovely food, post-paddle relaxed feel and a small glass of bubbles to go with the Christmas cake. In other years we’ve had river games, in older times we had a watermelon paddle. But this year it was just a fancy morning tea and conversation, in the shade, and that was just right.
So, in my role as president, I’ll take this opportunity to thank all the people who’ve been on the committee this year, and all the people who’ve contributed in other ways too. A club with variety is healthy and we have that variety in our membership.
With the new year upon us I’m looking forward to a fresh start. The pall of cyclone Debbie has been upon us since March but I feel confident that the new year will bring a renewed confidence in our future.
Travel safely over the holiday break and enjoy the Christmas cheer. Our first club paddle is our annual Fish and Chips Paddle at Evans Head on January 7th. 8:30 for a 9am start. The club trailer will be going. Contact the club (via email on this site) if you are coming or if you’d like more info . Non members are welcome, but you’ll need to sign up as a triallist for the day. Contact us for more information.
